Liquid -Bourjois - Healthy Mix Serum Gel Foundation

I'm NC25 and I bought this in 52. I like the finish of the foundation but unfortunately its just not yellow enough for my very yellow toned skin.
I got this from Sephora on sale. I slather this on my lips before bed and I've found that I'm having less problems with dry peeling lips. I'm not sure if I attribute that completely to this balm but I think its helped. As the previous reviewer said it has a realistic coconut scent which I've found inoffensive even though coconut scents are not a favorite of mine.
I LOVE this product. It smells amazing and I've been using it as a perfume / body moisturizer. I know this can also be used for the face, hair and nails but its a little too frangranced for the face, and I have other products for my hair. Whenever I use this, it just feels so luxurious. My only con for this product is the price. Its US$49 for 100mls - this lasted me about 4 months, and that was not even with daily use. I would buy again, but I'm currently looking for a cheaper alternative.
Eye Shadow -Maybelline - Barely Branded Color Tattoo

This reminded me a lot of MAC's paintpot in Bare Study. I actually like this product A LOT more than the Bare Study as it is not frosted, and more peachy. Overall, the color is very pretty and I've found the Maybelline Color Tattoos as great bases for eyeshadow.
I totally feel for the cute packaging and bubblegum colors of this product. Unfortunately, I didn't find myself enjoying the experience of using this that much. It felt a dad drying and didn't really lather well.
This has quickly become an HG for me and I hope it continues to work for me in the summer as well when my hair is at its hardest to manage. I love that you can put this on wet hair. I do find that my hair is less frizzy and it has become easier to work with. This product is pricey but so worth it!
This gold metallic nail polish is just very well done. The quality is great, and the color is super pretty. You reach opacity within the first coat. Love!
I'm surprised how much a staple this has become for me. Just looking at the pan, it looks very boring. But on the lid, it just looks so effortlessly "done" and is a great base for other shadows. If i'm in a rush, I feel confident just reaching for this and wearing this on its own. Its not shimmery at all, which I love as so many paint pots are frosted and shimmery.
Highlighters -Becca - Shimmering Skin Perfector in moonstone

This is such a pretty highlighter. When you're looking at the liquid, it is just a perfect mix of gold and silver (though it leans gold in color). It is lovely, but I don't find myself reaching for it much as I have many, many highlighters (and I prefer the color of the Opal SSP). I dont regret buying this though. It is lovely highlighter under brows and over the cheekbones, glowy but not oily/greasy.
Highlighters -Becca - Opal Shimmering Skin Perfector

This is a beautiful peachy rose gold highlighter. It imparts a beautiful glow on the skin. Technically you can mix it with your foundation, and put it under or over foundation. I mostly use it over foundation and it is lovely. It is expensive at approx $44US but you only need a tiny bit and it will literally last you a decade!
Polishes -Revlon - Heavenly Metal 928 Silver Dollar

I love this. I totally agree with a previous reviewer that this makes your nails look like discoballs! Its such great quality and reaches opacity with 1 coat. I use a Revlon base and top coat.
I managed to get two of these from QVC right before it was announced that the brand was going under. I'm so glad I did! This is a very natural and so easy to use. I'm yellow toned and love the rose gold color.
I have enjoyed using this and I do enjoy the scent. It's a bit pricey for a drugstore product but it works. My hair has been less frizzy of late, it has also become more oily but I'm not sure if this is related to this product. I'm hoping this continuous to work for me throughout the year.
Eye Shadow -L'Oreal - Infallible in Blinged & Brilliant

This is a LE infallible shadow. It is very similar in tone to the Infallible "Amber Rush". I had both and they are both rose gold bronzy toned, with the biggest difference seems that this is lighter and more frosted. I just find frosted eyeshadows unflattering on me so I had to give this to my sister.
I was intrigued by this as some of my favorite YT gurus love this color. I swapped for this and was disappointed. It was just too bright and possibly too cool toned for my yellow-toned complexion. I back-2-Mac'd this.
